To start things of properly, a short introduction. My name is Guido Kuip, I'm 24 years old and currently I'm doing my Masters at Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Since three years I am a student assistant in the art classes here, which basically means I help out students by giving critique, tips and general help in the drawing classes alongside the teacher. Since I got a lot of positive feedback on my ID drawings in my sketchbook here on CA, I thought it'd be nice to start a mentoring thread here to pass on some knowledge
As you can see, it got a little out of hand as there were more people applying than I anticipated, hence this sub-forum instead of a simple thread in the main area. I'm sorry for the temporary inconvenience, but in the end it'll be much better this way I think.
My mentees are:
I decided to take on 12 people, as simple observation of other mentor threads learns that there are drop-outs in every class so it's better to start with a lot of people . I hope this will not happen here of course, but if you feel like you don't have the time or motivation to keep doing the exercizes I set, please let me know! Maybe we can figure something out.
So, I realise most of you already introduced themselves in the initial thread, but this thread provides space to do so again in a more organized fashion. Feel free to blatter about yourself as much as you like, share adresses or advertise your own site or sketchbook.
One other thing, as some of you mentioned in the PM when applying: I'm not forcing you to take part in IDW as my mentee. I basically started this thread out of other motivations, chiefly because I've seen a lot of people on this site struggling with the subject of technical drawings. I can only encourage you to try the occasional IDW, as it is a good training of course.
